HOUSTON — The stars will be out on Saturday, April 12, as Lone Star College Foundation hosts StarGala 2008 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott. The annual event has grown in popularity, attendance and revenue over the past years. Last year the gala raised $352,000 for student scholarships from the generous donations of the local communities and business partnerships. StarGala 2008 will honor John Zizelmann posthumously and Conroe Regional Medical and Kingwood Medical Centers. Gala chairs Heather and Gary Montgomery anticipate an attendance of more than 700 guests. “John Zizelmann personified the phrase “pay it forward” and used his influence and connections - not for himself - but to help others,” said State Rep. Patricia Harless. “My commitment to the Foundation rests in my belief that every child deserves the opportunity of a college education. Each year, more and more students have that opportunity because of the mission of the LSC Foundation,” said Harless. “The Lone Star College Foundation StarGala is one of our most anticipated fundraising events,” said LSCS Chancellor Dr. Richard Carpenter. “Annually it raises hundreds of thousands of dollars that go directly to benefit student scholarships. It also gives the system an opportunity to thank and recognize some of our most valued partnerships and dedicated supporters,” said Carpenter. Tables and sponsorships are now available.
